An integral raincover pulls out in seconds when you need it, and it's big enough to cover your additional strapped-on gear too.

Excellent product

I took with me backpacking around South East Asia for 3 months, the rucksack was comfortable, durable and had plenty of space, zips and pockets. Amazing value for money.

OEX rucksack

I bought this rucksack and only used it to put my cooking utensils and extra clothing in to be carried by baggage transfer service whilst doing the West Highland Way. I had it filled up to capacity but not overly so and I could still easily zip it and clip it up.

After 5 days the seams burst at the side.

When I bought it I liked the fact it had lots of features but it did look flimsy and I knew it wouldn't last long but I thought I'd get a couple of years out of it not 5 days!!!

Waste of money.

Great bag

I was able to pick this bag up for half price a few weeks ago and I think it is probably one of the most comfortable bags I have ever worn. I tested it out while doing the wye valley walk. No back ache; no hot spots; easily adjustable to fit your frame.

Good

Good for the price, ideal for travelling. Only issue is it’s slightly difficult to alter height of shoulder straps.

Load lugger

Rucksacks aren't only used for yomping across the moors. In my case I needed to move a weekends worth of kit and rolls of wall paper (!), so it needed to be quite tall. The top flap is on straps rather than sewn on which allows it to extend up another 15cm. but to start at the beginning:-

Fabric looks like ripstop nylon with a water proof coating on the inside. Not the toughest bag I own, but tough enough if you're not falling down mountains. The (front?) is a formed ABS sheet with 2 (nicely made) metal stiffening ribs making it flexible without being soggy.
Inside, I can't see me ever using the hydration pouch if I have water bottles but the ABS sheet would stop books and maps being bent. Other than that its an unobstructed sack with a drawstring top.
outside:
On one side a long zipped (pole) pocket. On the other, an alternate zip into the main sack. There is an elasticated pocket at the (back?) In the top flap there are zipped pockets inside and out. Straps for your bed roll on top. At the bottom there is another zipped compartment. This is probably the only thing that lets it down. You should be able to pull the zip easily to open or close it. I don't think the design, stitching or zip are robust enough here. You need to "work it" open or closed. If you simply pull, its going to tear. You can live with it but you need patience. A bottle pouch on each side- - masked by the compression straps, but at least somewhere to put you M&Ms!

On many smaller bags the straps are simply sewn in and your adjustment is limited to longer or shorter. The straps are adjustable length, height and in/out like the big boys. The belt is padded but supports firmly. The straps twisted a little when putting on loaded but that could have been because I had carabeniers clipped into the D-rings. The chest strap might be a problem for an XL person in winter clothes. It was quite comfortable with a 15-20kg load.

Last but not least during this review I have discovered not just my M&Ms but also a rain cover in the base. generous in size and well elasticated. I have to say that the last time I used a cover it blew straight off so I sewed string ties into it. This elastic is quite substantial but I'm still tempted.

Overall:-
If I could change 2 things it would be better zips and more webbing for...stuff (I'm a MOLLE kind of guy). Weekend use. I Would want something a little more rugged for a plane unless its just for clothes. A useful beginner's hiking camping sack. Cheap/robust enough to use until you figure out what really works for you.

Low quality consider disposable.

I took a chance on this rucksack to replace a Vango bag that I had about 10 years and used multiple times. After fout uses two of the seams came apart. It wasn't over filled, not taken on an aircraft or had anything other than camping kit carried in it. Sadly this happened within 2 years after the 12 month warranty period so staff wouldn't change. No repair service offered. So to summarise if want a low quality disposable bag, then this is for you. If you want something to last then best spending more and get a decent brand.
